Pharmaceuticals play an important role in the diagnosis, treatment or prevention of disease and solvents are a key ingredient in both the production and administration of these medicines.
High-quality solvents are used within the production process as the medium in which the chemical reaction occurs and in maximising the purity of the drug. Where drugs are applied topically or administered as a liquid, solvents are used to dissolve the drugs safely into these medicinal formulations.
Alcohols Ltd has a long history working with clients providing high-quality, low impurity solvents suitable for use within the pharmaceutical industry and able to provide, as an example, the following solvents to British, European, or US Pharmacopeia standards:
- Monopropylene Glycol
